I think this is pretty generic. Brent sings the first verse and a half in cassidy which i ended up enjoying. I thought the Iko was pushed pretty hard and it was fun. Jerry enuciates well enough to hear a couple of funny lines. Bob is in and out on mic all show which is really distracting. No Jerry moments that i can recall. Phil is pretty quiet. Drummers hit on a few including throwing stones (super stock). Listen to bunny foo foo and hit the snooze button.

Problems whole show and Weir is out of tune and having a rough time w/equipment. Some decent effort (and a few very nice moments) here and there but sort of a lowest test score of an otherwise great spring/summer.

U know you're in the Wrong place when Myland's version of "Little Bunny Foo Foo" is the freshest performance of the evening.
1st Set: "Touch" is what it is... Always a sunny way to open up a show. However, this version doesn't overly stimulate. Neither does a standard "Promised" that's full of cheer, but nothing that's mandatory listening. "Row" is average, but nothing compares to Brent doing his best Doobie Brothers singing a verse of "Little Bunny Foo Foo." "Peggy O" is sweet but standard. Brent certainly puts his best foot forward on "Good Times/Never Trust," I wish the rest of his bandmates felt/acted in the same manner. "Cassidy" is nicely executed which leads to a barely decent "Ease" to close out the set.
2nd Set: It opens up rather blah-like with an "Iko" that all cutesy, and over played. "Stranger" barely makes adequate considering Bobby's having a tough time singing. "Ship" serves its purpose, tho to combine a cold 'Stranger' with an unfortunate 'Loser' would have scored higher marks. "Estimated" is spiky and always fun... Nothing too out of the ordinary, tho... "Drums/Space" pass without mention. "TOO" bores as does a really rough sounding "Black Peter." Wow, someone needs to turn down Bobby's guitar in this poorly recorded "Throwing." The effort's there for a "NFA" but this tape is Not patched together very well. The Stanford crowd gets a mild band sing-along which segues into a draggy "Quinn."
I'm telling ya, that 'Bunny Foo Foo' iswhere it's at...

this one goes down on my list of overrated shows. Not bad by any means but I have had this gig for several years and find nothing spectacular about it. First set is short and weir is non existent because he can't get his shit together. second set is played nicely, but nothing I would seal in a vault. I guess when the band breaks out Little Bunny foo foo, it goes down in history as a historic night. For the life of me, I can't believe people rave about this one. Would love others opinions on this one. Oh well.

Magic at Frost
The weather was beautiful for this afternoon show.
The moon was huge nearly full and could be seen just above the live oaks that framed the stage.
There is a strange out of place yell by the audience during the second set when an Owl flew low from one branch just stage right and crossed directly over the mic stands to the opposite to the shock of the whole band and audience.
When the show ended and people were exiting some strange guy who looked like Alan Ginsberg on Steroids suddenly grabbed Bill Graham and exclaimed, "This MAN MADE THIS HAPPEN!"
